Happy Camp After the Floods: January 15, 2005


The below set of pictures shows the changing face of the upper canyon wilderness preserve (3000 acres), both from the climb up Big Mountain and looking down on the wash and surrounding lands to the South, AND from along the canyon bottom "road" or the now VERY WIDE wash that has replaced the road in many locations.


I hope to have more to post for you soon.  But this will give you a flavor for what a big "event" these floods were.  This was just an aim and shoot camera so I could not do anyhting about the washed out photos without spending a lot of time in photoshop or something.


These ended up appearing after download, in reverse order of the way the pictures were taken.  The first shot was 00A, followed by 0A, and then 1A through 24A, following by the last one as E001. 


I will give a better log as soon as I can, but suffice to say for now that we started up the trail up Big Mountain and went as high as where the GPS mountaineering "box" is, along with the upper picnic table at a great lookout.  From this lookout, 4A through 9A, in order, present a panoramic view from South Mountain, going right to left, or north to west to south to east ending up facing toward Moorpark College/Alamos Canyon in distance.  Not much damage up there.


Pictures before then are on the way up to there, and pictures after then, are on the way back down--until you get to the canyon bottom again at # 11A with the big Oak Tree on right.  Then we are heading up the canyon, on the canyon bottom "road" or in the WIDE wash.


See especially 19A showing the well that used to be off what was the north side of road.  Instead it clearly shows how much land has been washed away, about four to five vertical feet! ...and a lot more than than that horizontally.


See also 20A showing a unique perspective of the remaining road next to the deep wash with Madeline's hat prominently showing at bottom right. She is standing IN the wash and is about 5' 6" tall.


The last shot (E001) is at the location that we used to call the Spring, where you used to cross the creek near the ranch water tank.  You can see what I now call the "Chimney Tree," on the right, that took a big hit from the fire but is still alive, as one of the older trees in the park.  See how wide the wash is there now, as compared to before the fires and floods.


More later.....Roseann


P.S. If you choose "Show all" they will all load BIG and you can scroll to see them without having to click on each thumbnail to make it larger.
